Seems strange to be writing about the arrival of spring as yesterday’s heat made it feel like we are already well into summer. But the cooler air has returned today. A good thing, in my opinion, as spring is one of my favourite times to roam.
Although I don’t consider myself a “birder” by any stretch of the imagination, one of my favourite things about spring returning to the area is the sound of the birds searching the forest behind our house for food, the right mate and the perfect nesting spot. Throughout the rest of the year we see the usual suspects – the chickadees, nuthatches, finches, and dark-eyed juncos – at our feeders.
With Valentine’s Day and Family Day falling on consecutive days this year, it would make sense if this post was about my love for my family. And don’t get me wrong, I love my family and the life we have created together more than anything. But since Covid has turned so much of our lives upside-down over the last year, I thought it might be more appropriate for me to share something that Covid has taught me to love – the beautiful hiking opportunities that we are so blessed to have nearby.
